One-Pan Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

1 stick of butter

½ cup of white granulated sugar

½ cup of light brown sugar

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1 egg

11/2 cups of all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon salt

1 ½ cups of semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt the butter in an 8-inch or 9-inch cast iron skillet over medium-low heat. Slowly stir in the vanilla and sugars until the mixture is a caramel color and smooth. Remove the pan from heat and let the mixture rest until the pan is warm but no longer very hot, about 5 minutes.

2. Crack an egg onto the butter and sugar mixture and whisk it into the mixture. Place flour, baking soda and salt on top and very carefully stir into the mixture until smooth and well-mixed. Stir the chocolate chips in last.

3. Place in the oven and bake for 15 to 25 minutes, or until starting to turn golden on top and around the edges, but still soft in the center. Serve as a sundae and top with ice-cream and chocolate syrup, or enjoy on its own.
